Fire retardant impregnation
UCC-Services specialize in the impregnation of combustible materials to prevent the ignition and spread of fire. Applying fire retardant ensures that in the event of a fire, the fire is hindered and the spread of the flames are slowed down. This will aid escape and increase the flight time in an uncontrolled fire in areas such as hotels and care homes where the chances of survival are considerably increased. The introduction of plastics in the 1960s has significantly increased the risk of fire in our living environment. In a normal house fire, it used to take fifteen minutes from the start of the fire to an uncontrolled fire. Nowadays it only takes two to three minutes for a house fire to become uncontrollable.

In short, flame retardants (fire proofing) slow down the combustion of material, thus preventing accidents that could result in a fire. Flame retardants and flame retardant materials save lives and reduce property damage.
